I'm not a real fan. Honestly, it will be hard to miss him because I don't know him. But I think it reminds me of death. Headlines and news bytes won't let us forget it until something hotter moves the story to the back burner. So, for the next few days, every level of American culture will think about death. Everyone will think about their own mortality. People will ask why and how and walk away with unanswered questions about life. We'll each think or form or revisit an opinion about the Afterlife.
